In the same pan, add a bit of olive oil, if necessary. Then, fry the tomatoes, garlic, and thyme strig. Cook a few minutes or until the tomatoes burst. Keep warm.

Many cooking methods exist for omelettes. Indeed, you can finish cooking by covering your pan with a lid to steam cook. Otherwise, you could also finish by grilling your omelette, which provides a nice golden colour (many people prefer this method because the cheese melts better)! Which method is your favourite?
